When you choose the Indiana University School of Dentistry for your dental care, you can be confident that you’re getting quality care at an affordable cost. Your exact cost will depend on what services you receive, but in general, the school’s fees are substantially less than what you would pay at a private dental practice.
Paying for your dental care
Pay your bill
The School of Dentistry’s online payment service is temporarily down for upgrades. To make a bill payment by phone, call us at 317-274-5305 and select option 2.
The School of Dentistry accepts several dental insurance plans and Medicaid. If you do not have dental insurance or Medicaid, you must pay your bill at the time of service. The school accepts cash, checks, money orders, and credit cards.
If your treatment costs more than you can pay at the time of service, you will have the opportunity to meet with a financial consultant to discuss a payment plan. Services will not be performed until you have signed a contract and made a down payment.

Dental insurance and Medicaid
If you have dental insurance or Medicaid, be sure to bring your insurance card or Medicaid card to each appointment. The School of Dentistry will submit claims for your treatment to your insurer or Medicaid for you. You will be billed for any costs that are not covered by your insurer or Medicaid.
Sometimes the school must get approval from your insurer or Medicaid before you can receive treatment. In those cases, the school will submit a preauthorization request asking your insurer or Medicaid to cover the services proposed by your provider.
If the request is approved, the school will proceed with your treatment and submit your claim to your insurer or Medicaid. If it is denied, you must pay for the treatment yourself at the time of service.
If a third party (someone other than yourself, such as a family member) will pay for your dental care, the School of Dentistry must get written authorization from the third party for each procedure.
